Illuminations highlighting ways to reverse climate change can now be seen lighting up some of King’s Lynn’s landmark buildings.
DRAWDOWN, a new town-scale outdoor projection project, was launched last Sunday evening.
The vibrant projections draw attention to a different theme for each building – Emissions at the Minster, Afforestation at St Nicholas’ Chapel, Water at the Custom House and Energy at Greyfriars Tower.
Artist Ben Sheppe, who created DRAWDOWN, said: “The difficulty with climate change is that many of us have become desensitised to it and feel like we are being told off for the state of the planet.
“To create this work, I’ve focused on the most relevant subjects for King’s Lynn, tailoring the selected solutions to the locality.”
The project is produced by arts organisation Collusion, which has worked in the town for four years in partnership with West Norfolk Council.
Collusion’s director Rachel Drury said: “People are missing the experience of cultural events, so we are proud to be bringing such a beautiful and thought-provoking experience to King’s Lynn, one that everyone can enjoy at a time when so many of our usual activities are off the table.”
Borough council Paul Kunes, cabinet member for climate change and commercial services, said: “This is a fantastically creative way to get some very important messages across to our residents.
“I’m looking forward to seeing more of these projections over the next few weeks and urge people to see how they can make a difference.”
DRAWDOWN can be seen from twilight to 10pm until Tuesday, November 24.
